A simple, stockinette stitch, sock scrap scarf worked in the round with ribbed cuffs.

This simple-to-knit scarf uses up lots of fingering weight yarn scraps or mini-skeins by working them into a riot of color and pattern. Solid ribbed bands at the ends tie it together. Knit your scarf extra-long to wrap twice, or to be able to slip hands inside the open ends for warmth.

What happens to all those yarn ends? Push them to the center of the hollow tube, knot, and trim. Easy peasy.

Alliteration uses approximately 375 g or sock/fingering weight scraps and/or mini-skeins.

Pattern Notes

• This scarf is constructed as a hollow tube with ribbing at each end.
• There is no need to use a stitch marker while knitting the tube body of the scarf.
• A stitch marker should be used on the ribbed ends of the scarf to ensure there are an equal number of rounds.
• Self-patterning and self-striping yarns are great to use as they add color and pattern without creating more ends.
